Arsenal 2/1 to progress further than Chelsea.

Arsenal and Chelsea take to the Champions League stage tomorrow and Sky Bet make Arsene Wenger's men 2/1 to progress further in the competition than their rivals Chelsea (4/11).

Arsenal started their European campaign with a 6-0 home win against Braga but they will be without Cesc Fabregas, Theo Walcott, Robin van Persie and keeper Manuel Almunia for their trip to Partizan Belgrade. It's 7/4 Arsenal to outscore Chelsea, who host French side Marseille (evens Chelsea and 3/1 Draw).

Will Arsenal shine in Europe?

Will Arsenal shine in Europe?

It's 11/8 for the Partizan Belgrade v Arsenal match to contain more goals than the Chelsea v Marseille match (11/10 Chelsea v Marseille and 7/2 Tie).

Sky Bet's Tim Reynolds said: "Arsenal will be hoping to continue their good start to their Champions League campaign but they are still missing key players so they will have to be at their very best if they are going to come away from Belgrade with maximum points."

Leicester Tigers 2/1 favourites for Premiership glory

Leicester Tigers remain the favourites for the Aviva Premiership regular season and the Grand Final following the weekend's results.

Leicester easily beat Leeds 48-6 on Saturday and remain 2/1 for the regular season and also 2/1 to go on to win the Grand Final.

Northampton have drifted to 5/2 (from 2/1) for the regular season with Sky Bet after they lost to Saracens on Sunday while Bath are into 7/2 (from 4/1) after they beat Sale 31-16.

Saracens have been cut to 9/2 (from 6/1) for regular season glory and London Irish remain at 8/1 after they beat Newcastle 46-12.

Frankel cut to 4/1 for the Derby

Frankel has been cut into 4/1 from 9/2 for next year's Derby by Sky Bet who have been forced to cut their standout price following sustained support over the weekend.

Henry Cecil's unbeaten Galileo colt has been in huge demand since his impressive Royal Lodge success propelled him into favouritism for the both the 2000 Guineas and Derby next year.

Matt Doyle of Sky Bet said: 'We held the industry wide top price for the Derby as long as we could, but Frankel was already a bad result in the ante-post book before his brilliant Ascot victory.'

Nearer to hand, the gamble on Nationalism for the Cambridgeshire at Newmarket on Saturday shows no signs of abating and John Gosden's charge has been clipped into 9/2 from 5s.

Back to today's action and it has been very quiet in the Sky Bet trading room with Declan Carroll's Swiftly Done the mover of the day into 8/1 from 20s with Neil Farley booked for the Apprentice Handicap at Bath.

In the 2m1f handicap (4.30), jockey bookings have again been the focus of attention for punters with Saborido cut into 6/1 from 15/2 to return to form for Amanda Perrett with Ryan Moore taking over in the saddle.
